I am ready. I am ready to move on from here; from this place of pain and anger; from this place so thick with the past that it smells of decay. I am ready to live new and fresh, letting yesterday stay behind me. I am ready, Emerson, to take your advice and rejoice in the sticky, messy, newness that is today. I forge ahead with strength and dignity, humbly accepting the greatness that is to come… and it will come.
